Lovely friends...

Hello everyone,

Happy Wednesday!

I had such fun making this card with the beautiful
by Stamping Bella
To make this card I first created the background by stamping and heat embossing in white the Stamping Bella Love Back Drop.

Then I blended Distress Oxides in Shaded Lilac and Peacock Feathers over the background, (the white embossing resists the distress colours), and sprinkled the background with water and Perfect Pearls.

I stamped and die cut gorgeous Raven and coloured her with Polychromos in purples and pale blue/greens as shown.

Finally I added some Stickles to the bow and the background.

This is the most difficult piece of pencil colouring I have tried so far and I am really happy with how she came out!
Thank you for popping by!

Happy Crafting

Thyroid Awareness Month Blog Hop...

Hello friends, 

I'm here today with a special blog post, part of a massive month long hop arranged by my lovely crafting friend
Milka Gubo

26 designers (including me) from all over the World have gathered for this special blog hop, which has taken place from January 5th until January 30th.  Each day one designer has shared a handmade project on her blog.  (Please see entire blog hop list below).

The aim of the hop is to support Thyroid Awareness Month, January, and to raise public awareness of the importance of the Thyroid Gland and the problems it can cause when it's not working properly.

The Thyroid Gland looks like a butterfly and that has been adopted as the symbol for Thyroid Awareness Month.

All the cards made for this cause have a butterfly theme.
 I chose the beautiful image
Babette The Butterfly by Stamping Bella 
This blog hop is not sponsored by any artist or company. Instead, there will be couple giveaways on a couple of the blogs along the way
I won't reveal the designers who will have giveaways on their blogs, you'll have to find that out yourself so be sure to visit each designer to find out if they are offering a prize, details about prizes and how those prizes can be won.

Thank you for hopping by!

Old Geezer!...

Hello friends, 

Hope it's a Happy Monday!

I'm here today to show you some fabulous goodies from 
January release!

To make this card I first stamped the Buffalo Plaid Background Rubber Cling Stamp and heat embossed it in black.

Then I blended the background with Distress Ink Pads in Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire.

I created the background for the Old Geezer by lightly blending the same distress inks onto a piece of card, sprinkling it with water and splattering it with black acrylic paint.

I repeated this on a second piece of card and then die cut the Old Fart Word Die.

I stamped the Old Geezer Clear Stamp in black ink and coloured him with Copics, adding the plaid pattern to his jacket and slippers with a black fine liner and a white gel pen.

I square cut the plaid background and the blended background and layered them together then I added the old fart die cut and the old geezer as shown!

Finally I die cut one of the strips from the New Quick Strips Die Set and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Old Geezer Clear Stamp set onto it.

I trimmed the strip slightly and fixed it to the top right hand side of the card design as shown.

Pretty in Plaid, Whimsy New Release! ...

Hello everyone!

Happy New Year, wishing you all a happy and healthy 2019!

Not only do we have all the excitement of a new year, we also have three days of new release fabulousness from
wonderful

I'm starting the week off with probably my favourite of the cards I've made to show you the new release goodies!
I have used the beautiful background stamp
and

To make my card I stamped the Buffalo Plaid Background Rubber Cling Stamp with an embossing pad and heat embossed it in white (The white heat embossed ink resists the colour from the Distress Inks).

Then I blended Distress Inks on top of the embossed plaid background - I used Evergreen Bough, Worn Lipstick, Shaded Lilac and Scattered Straw which are quite delicate and look gorgeous together.

I used two square dies together to die cut a white frame and fixed the frame to the background.

Next I die cut white card with the Thanks Word with Shadows Die Set and blended Evergreen Bough Distress Ink over the word thanks.  I fixed that to the stitched edged die cut shadow and then fixed the die cuts to the bottom right hand side of the card design as shown.

Finally I added some glitter dots to the card design in similar colours to the Distress Ink.
I think this is just so pretty and delicate and is an effect I will definitely use again!

Thank you so much for popping by!
